Cousins

If you know my family or are a part of my family, well this is nothing new (or it might be), whatever.
Just about everyone is a cousin. We have real cousins - the ones that are the children of our Aunts and Uncles, and we have other cousins, children of our cousins, or people who aren't Aunts or Uncles, I think, but it just seems like everywhere I turn I bump into a cousin. When I was a teenager I had (have) a cousin that would call from out of state and ask me "is this little Julie? Do you know who this is?" okay, for one thing...this cousin is someone that I maybe saw every 5 years if that, and no I didn't know who it was. I will give a hint-T.R. Another cousin also used to do this- another male cousin- but now he says who he is first-K.H. I am the baby of the cousins, and the eldest of the other cousins. I have about 8 cousins on my dad's side of my family and I am the baby. I have 8 cousins on my mom's side -and I am the baby. I have cousins that could be my parent in age ...all the way down to just a few years older than I am. My cousins have kids and they are my cousins...I will try to count them. Just a sec. Okay, I lost count on my dads side at 15. And I think 15 on my mom's side. My husband has 1 sister who has no children and his parents. Maybe a half -Aunt/Uncle on his mom's side and that's it. My family has a reunion in August, I don't think I will be able to go out, but if you do and people ask you who you are...you know what to do...say your a cousin! lol!


Oh,yeah! All of the husbands/wives of my cousins are called cousin.

I may have to sit down and do some serious figuring and counting. That is a fun blog! Thanks. Some of my second cousins are my age, because my actual cousins are so much older. I was one of the young ones, also.

yeh, we go to the reunion to see al of mom's cousins!
I knew someone who was the youngest of 21 children. In the same family. So think how many cousins their cousins had!

You aren't the eldest of anybody, because I am. But that doesn't mean I'm better than you.

Actually, Dawn is.

Dawn is a second cousin dear, but you are older than me...thats true.
